The front sheet metal and engine were removed. It is starting to take longer removing the engine due to the extra stuff which has been attached.

The first order of business once the engine was out was to put in the final fuel line clamp. There was no room to get the drill motor in there with the engine in.

The 18" long Jeg's brake hoses were put in place and the front suspension cycled up and down, right and left. The ideal spot turned out to be just inboard and forward of the hats. This was determined by holding them in place for the first try. Then they were tack welded in place and checked again. Once the location was certain, the tabs were fully welded in place.

Bent up the other tranny line tonight. A bracket needs to be fabbed so the line clamp can attach to the oil pan stud. I decided to put an auxiliary cooler in front of the radiator, so for now I am leaving the front incomplete. On to the brake lines.

After I finished the fuel lines, I started on the tranny lines. The first one is complete. Hopefully the second one will be complete today. A lot depends on how the weather is. Looks like more cold rain.

Got a late start. More shopping trips for paint and stuff.

Put the last bends in the supply line. Made the braided stainless line from the pump to the supply line. All the line mounting clamps are in place except for the one up at the front. Engine will have to be pulled to get that one in.

So, once that line mount is in place and the fuel filler and vent are finished, the fuel system is done. The lines will have to be flushed. I just hope it doesn't leak!

Well, HF replaced the tube bender - no probs.

Wednesday night I did get some tube work done. No photos. Weather report has changed and today looks promising. My wife doesn't want to go to the home and garden show. Time to get some work done. Photos later today.
